Board-Level International Placements to Enable the Delivery of Business Plan

The Challenge

We met this client through a referral from previous PE-Backed clients. They had a phenomenal business model to capitalise on and needed several board members to help deliver this business plan. We were retained on this search to map out the industry and ensure that the right board level candidates were brought in for such an important and crucial stage in the business. Due to it being such a critical point of their growth, we had to get this right first-time and as swiftly as possible.

The Results

We showed the client our Retained Method model and approached their needs like a project. We set deadlines when they could expect a strong, relevant shortlist and set dates for interviews, ensuring each stage was booked in even before the search began.

We set a dedicated team to map out the market, both with active candidates and key competitors. We identified talent as far and wide as Korea, Canada, the US and Europe. This venture was not without risk, and the candidates concerned required lots of consultative support through the process, requiring us to really get to know both them and the business in order to deliver the right result. After an exhaustive (and exhausting) shortlisting process, we delivered a truly international group of candidates to the PE Firm, ran through the lengthy interviews while co-ordinating different time zones, and helped them to secure the perfect candidates that best suited their needs.

Their Words: the CEO

“GAN weren’t just a breath of fresh air, but a whirlwind of activity that blew away my notions of what makes a good recruiter. They actually seemed to really care, juggling time zones and making themselves available constantly to suit our international business day, and stayed really involved after the successful candidate had been placed.”
